Aw. The Braves still think that they have a chance this year. How cute.
It would make my baseball year if the Braves can knock off the Mets and Phillies.

Him or gray.

Wouldn’t mind rolling with voth, Fedde, Ross, espino, and Corbin.  The tank train cometh
Gray was already up with the Dodgers so I'd imagine he will slot in pretty quickly.

funny thing is, in the offseason I wanted Duvall in a platoon with Stevenson or a guy like Petersen or Rosario if we could afford it.  Except for Stevenson, they are all together now.

Petersen and Duvall are both underrated (although I didn't like the way Petersen circled the bases in 2016 Game 5).

I feel bad for those of you who invested in 2021 season packages.  This is NOT going to be anything any baseball fan would want to watch.
Supply exploded and prices plummeted on Stubhub yesterday afternoon, as the trades started and DC reinstated a mask mandate, including at Nationals Park.  The big weekend against the Cubs is going to be a bust.  10,000 Cubs fans and maybe 10,000 Nats fans at best.

Are the Cubs also going to send a AAA team?  No Rizzo, no Baez, no Bryant, no Idiot Pterodactyl...

Barrera will get his bats at Rochester. Read is as good as gone.

Barrera has nothing left to prove in the minor leagues.

If by misfortune the DH becomes universal, am I only person who sort of expects Ruiz by his arbitration years to be a full time DH who moonlights at 1B?

We now have a bunch of catching depth and Ruiz isn’t highly ranked for his glove.

Can’t remember where I read it, but Ruiz grades about the same as Posey did at this point. He could potentially split time between catcher and first.

if that happens, he'd be following the V-Mart model.  I can live with that.

I really don't want him to cool off, but I'm sadly expecting that to happen. Dude has never been this good in the minors.

There's been discussion of just how good is the system now. dougherty's article explains some of the rankings, with a bit of a skeptical eye on rankings in general:

Quote
Gray and Ruiz, both 23, are the highlights, joining right-hander Cade Cavalli as the Nationals’ top prospects. Baseball America’s midseason Top 100 had Keibert ranked 16th in all of baseball, Cavalli at 27th and Gray at 59th. Shortstop/third baseman Brady House, the Nationals’ first-round pick this year, is ranked 92nd. Rizzo saw a need for catchers and addressed it with Ruiz, first and foremost, then Adams and Millas, too.

Ruiz, who had appeared in eight games for the Dodgers between this season and last, had a batting average/on-base percentage/slugging percentage slash line of .311/.381/.631 with Class AAA Oklahoma City this year, including 16 homers in 206 at-bats as a switch hitter. Adams, a 25-year-old who logged 30 plate appearances for the Toronto Blue Jays, is 6-foot-4 and 246 pounds, according to Baseball Reference, and he has showed pop in the minors. Millas, 23, was drafted as a strong defensive catcher. This season, he had measured success as a switch hitter for Oakland’s High Class A affiliate, posting a .372 on-base percentage in 59 games. He will begin his Nationals tenure with High Class A Wilmington, putting him behind Ruiz and Adams in the pecking order.

Just saw a clip of Max’s first no-hitter. Wilson Ramos and Tyler Moore were the first to guys to hug him on the mound.

How many rookie DHs are there now, and have been in the last 50 years or so?

No clue. But Ruiz is a few years from arbitration

If his glove warrants time as a backstop, that would be a great outcome for the Nationals.

The more I read about Thompson from San Diego, the more I wonder why someone does not develop him as a starter. I know the rough era, but he seems to have three plus pitches. Would be a shame to see him end up not developing them all.

Elijah Dukes.

Now that I have your attention, does anybody know if Daylen Lile signed before the deadline for signing draft picks today?

Barrera's bat has indeed been surprisingly good. Basically, though, all of the Nats Catchers got a vote of "No Confidence" from Rizzo in terms of who was brought in.

I’m a little stunned we got a player for Lester that can be at least a serviceable MLB player. Even if it is only as a 4th or 5th OF.
